DENVER -- Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado was scratched from the lineup Monday due to a sore left wrist and is listed as day to day. And left fielder Corey Dickerson, who has been dealing with plantar fasciitis in his left foot, left the game after running out a ground ball to end the third inning of a 14-3 loss to the Padres.
Arenado had started the Rockies' previous 12 games and had played all but one inning. He was lifted in the bottom of the ninth inning April 6 at Milwaukee, where the Rockies opened the 2015 season with a 10-0 victory.
• Before the game, Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau, the reigning National League batting champion, was presented with the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame's Tip O'Neill Award. It is the third time Morneau has won the award, which is presented annually to the Canadian player judged to have excelled in individual achievement and contribution to his team while adhering to baseball's highest ideals.
Morneau is the fourth player to win the award three times. The others are former Rockies outfielder Larry Walker, Reds first baseman Joey Votto and former outfielder Jason Bay.
